I think i might have narrowed it down to those 2... I need it this week, so i can't order much. I don't know whether i would need the video card or not. :( I am going to school, so cash is limited, so im going back and forth
They both seem quite expensive considering their screens are only 14 inches, do you really want to spend that much on a laptop if it is just for school? I just don't feel that the laptops you listed have anything that special to be priced so high... like the Sony VAIO only has a 14 inch screen, 5400 rpm HD, integrated graphics... and the Asus one would only be worth it (still feel that it is overpriced) if you intend on gaming on it... but it wouldn't be very good for games (expecially with a 14inch screen).

I would get something like this one for student use.

Oh and I don't think that the laptop being sold is a recalled one. You can always check but I wouldn't worry too much about that. (but u should check before buying)
